Farm raw head-on shell-on shrimp

The Penaeus vannamei shrimp is a crustacean commonly known as shrimp, white shrimp or tropical shrimp.

It has a translucent shell of a uniform grey color. Its color varies according to the color of the soil on which it is raised. When cooked, the shell is a strong pink color and the flesh is white with a pink tinge.
It is harvested all year round in Latin America, particularly in Peru, or from March to October in South East Asia.
Harvesting is done using gravity, with the help of nets, or with a machine called a “cosechadora”.

The absence of any chemical or antibiotic treatment allows its taste qualities to be fully expressed.
It is BIO, BAP and ASC certified.
We sell it raw head-on shell-on.
Enjoy it in cooked dishes, pan-fried, in puff pastry or on skewers.
